Peru Mission Journey, Days 1 & 2

Well, we are beginning another adventure in Peru. This year we have a team of 11 going down from our church. Many of the people I know and a couple I only know by name only, not really getting to know them well in life outside of church.

We sat in the airport and did a devotion. Intentionally I wanted to get everyone together before we left to see begin the relationship and to start the hunger in everyone’s belly for living a life on mission.

We left BWI airport at 10:30 AM and, by the time we cleared customs in Peru, it was 11:30 PM and almost 1AM by the time we crawled in bed. We had to be up at 6 AM to be ready for a very full day of getting acclimated to Peru.

The first day, our local guide trief to get us to understand a little about Peru, after we went to church.

This includes a lot of just touristy type things. We went down by the water in Mira Flores, took a bus tour of the city, visited the catacombs, and ate at one of our favorite crepe places.

We also had one of the couples in our group renew their vows! It was awesome!

We ended the night back at church, the main campus of the church we are here with.

The night was a late night, but very well worth it. We really bonded as a team. We met a couple that live in the town we are getting ready to move to and we really clicked with them.

The next day we woke up a little later, which was a true blessing, and headed to Camino de Vida in La Victoria. Our plan was to paint the outside of the church. When we arrived, we spent over an hour simply praying for the church. We went room by room and prayed over the room, the future function of the church, and the present/future workers.

After that, we jumped right in on painting the walls outside.

As we ended the night, we went to a Peruvian chicken restaurant and then back to the hotel early where I fell asleep upon hitting the pillow for a short nap.

Tomorrow we will head back to La Victoria to paint the sidewalks, bike lane, and bricks. This church is going to be beautiful! It will be the most beautiful building in La Victoria and it was all done with very minimal cost.

I look forward to this week and ask for prayers for our entire team.

I’ll keep you all updated throughout the week.
